This story is quite a bit off the beaten path as far as Android related content is concerned, but we thought it was cool enough to share just as an interesting conversation starter. There are a ton of exciting looking sci-fi/action movies coming out this year, like Captain America: Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Interstellar and many more. A new trailer was just released of a movie that none of us here at HQ had heard of, but were pleasantly surprised by.
It's called simply, "Lucy," but it is not a spinoff of the Charlie Brown cartoons. Lucy is a sci-fi action thriller starring the easy-on-the-eyes Scarlett Johansson. It is being directed by Luc Besson, who is no stranger to crafting kick-ass female characters. As an example of that, this is the same guy who directed The Fifth Element. This latest creation is similar in theme to the Bradley Cooper movie, Limitless, but takes on a darker tone and is focused more on action instead of drama.
Here's a plot synopsis of the movie: Lucy is an everyday-average woman (although few would call ScarJo average), who is traveling abroad, and is forced into becoming a drug mule for an Asian drug cartel. She is assaulted en route which causes some of this experimental drug to leak into her blood-stream in such a way that she gains super-genius intelligence and starts mutating/evolving with superhuman powers.
It looks like it could be a fun action, sci-fi popcorn romp, and might even include some interesting philosophical questions. Sound off and let us know what you think of this movie trailer.
